. >>> the financial toll from hurricane sandy could be more than double the estimates we heard before it hit. new estimates today indicate the total cost could reach $50 billion. $30 billion in economic loes, and up to $20 billion in the cost for insurance companies. this estimate went up because of damage to new york subway system and the blocked roads that are keeping help out of so many communities. for the first time since sandy shut them down, all three of new york's major airports are up and running. you can see the flooding mess at laguardia just a couple of days ago. that airport now open with a limited schedule. both jfk and newark which had already opened on a limited basis, are expected to be in full operation by tomorrow. overall, flight cancellations as a result of sandy are now near 21,000. getting around new york is still a huge challenge. this was the scene in brooklyn today. thousands in line waiting to get on a city bus for a ride into manhattan. that line was four people deep. it literally wrapped around the block and most of them would normally be taking the subway into manhat
